Broke But Fixing It: Dine At These Budget-Friendly Restaurants In The City

End of the month need not mean you’re confined indoors with nowhere to go. Mumbai has a whole list of restaurants that serve great food even on a budget! We went around town to give you the top eateries around town you can enjoy on a budget.

Thotrin Cafe

Thotrin Cafe

Santacruz East, Mumbai

North-Eastern food gets one to appreciate the simplicity and uniqueness of a good meal. Plus the cozy décor will really make you feel at home! The chefs don’t follow any set recipe, so that’s super exciting. They cook with the seasonal ingredients, and we’re not kidding when we say we can taste the herbs as if they were freshly picked a few hours ago.
